It seems to me, that you`ve forgotten to put the needed modules for scsi
and eth into /etc/modules.conf. Then you'll have to run depmod -A (or 
-a, dunno know exactly). That's the way I solved the "problem" on my LFS 

If this doesn't work, try to compile the drivers for your scsi and 
ethernet devices directly into the kernel.
